Founded in 2005, the Jeffrey E. Smith Institute of Real Estate and Capital Markets operates within the Department of Finance of the Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business. Its mission is to provide educational opportunity in real estate, finance and capital markets to students of the Trulaske College.
The Institute’s desire for excellence is enhanced by its advisory board’s professional guidance. They seek to continually improve the quality of the existing programs within the Institute and to also create new opportunities for students to interact with business professionals in corporate settings.
One such existing program is the Trends in Real Estate & Capital Markets Forum, which is hosted by the University of Missouri Trulaske College of Business and sponsored by JES Holdings, LLC. This event provides students the opportunity to meet professionals and executives in real estate, finance and capital markets industries.
